Football season is about to kick off, and we couldn’t be more excited to host all of our watch parties at The Brick Yard this year. Head to 1787 Union St, San Francisco to cheer on the Spartans and enjoy $10 MSU Mules (a delicious cocktail featuring our favorite Michigan pop, Vernor’s), $6 Sparty Slammers and other happy hour food and drink specials.
Thank you so much to all the great Spartans that came out to The Brick Yard tonight for our partnership kickoff party! I am beyond thrilled to have such a great partner on our team going into what is sure to be a fantastic football season! We have been working hard for years on your behalf to get to this point, and it is very exciting to finally be here!! Lots of Spartans got a preview of the tasty, exclusive MSU cocktails tonight. I even had a U.P. inspired Pasty for dinner! When was the last time you had one? I can’t wait for the rest of you to see how great this place is, starting next Friday night with the Jacksonville State game. Go Green! And welcome to your new SF home for all things MSU!
Thank you to everyone who joined us at our Inaugural Spartan Family Picnic. It was a fun time with Sparty and a big group of great MSU alumni – #SpartyPicnic was the perfect way to send the Bay Area MSU students back to campus. We can’t wait to do it again next summer!

We are excited to announce that we have official San Francisco Spartans t-shirts for sale, just in time for football season! East Lansing’s Underground Printing will have shirts available for order until Wednesday, August 20th to ensure arrival before the Oregon game. The forest green shirts are offered in two styles: crew neck and v-neck. Both shirts are unisex sized, meaning both women and men can get either v-neck or crew neck. It’s important to note that women should order one size smaller than they are normally used to, so if you’re normally a small in women’s sizes, get an extra small in the unisex size.
Spartans! We have an early bye week in the beautiful month of September, and if we can’t pack The Brick Yard to catch a game, what else are we going to do with ourselves? The answer: take a bus to wine country! We had a blast last year and hope you’ll join us for round 2. Space is limited to 49 seats on the bus this year, so buy your tickets before they sell out!
